I am pleased to announce that having completed the Boetica bridge crossing which created access to the residents of Boetica and Delices, the Prime Minister and Minister for Finance and the cabinet of Dominica have approved a EC$4.6M dollar package for rehabilitation works in the Delices/Boetica area. This EC$4.6M dollars will address all of the compromised areas between La Ronde and point Mulattre.
